Five documents you need for a destination wedding


Published 9th Mar 2016

Planning to say 'I do' overseas? Make sure you have these prepared...

 

#1 An in-date passport

Let's start with a no-brainer! You will be required to have a passport that still has at least six months left before it expires. Remember: passports are only valid for 10 years, so check yours are both okay ASAP.

#2 Additional passport photos

No more than four should be required - check in advance how many you'll need though.

#3 Apostille stamp on the necessary documents

This is an official confirmation that proves a document is genuine. You can get the stamp via the legislation services of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office. 

#4 Certificate of No Impediment

This document is required in some parts of the world, and simply represents the fact that there is no known impediment to your marriage. You can't pay for this online; instead payment must be made via the British High Commision.

#5 Proof of identity and marital status

You will most likely need copies of both your birth certificates, and if you're widowed, you'll also require a copy of your previous partner's death certificate. If you're divorced and remarrying, you'll need a decree absolute, bearing the stamp of the court.
